Audio monitoring precision is lifted to an entirely new level of accuracy with the introduction of the 8240A bi-amplified DSP two-way monitoring system. Boasting performance comparable to much larger systems, the compact and powerful 8240A package is ideal in applications where a wide frequency response is needed but space is limited. The 8240A is the ideal monitoring tool for recording studios, post-production houses, broadcast installations, digital edit suites, home studios and mobile production vehicles.
Carefully designed dsp crossover filters with extremely steep roll-off characteristics feed dedicated power amplifiers for each of the low distortion drivers. The 8240A features magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls as standard. The Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) control network and software enhances further the performance of the 8240A: it features adjustment of levels, distance delays and flexible room response improvement equalization with the reliable and robust AutoCal™ automated calibration system via the GLM™ control network. The 8240A has both analog and AES digital inputs in combination with a digital thru connection.
